The Lyrics

Hey, don't work with Kenneth Lay
He gives lots of cash to Democrats and
Republicans
But even then, he works with Andersen.
And they're shredding all their documents when the feds are away
But that was a crime, Bush and Cheney in the middle of Enron
Andersen Andersen has been maligned, All of their executives have resigned resigned
Hey, you know they're all the same.
Martha Stewart bought some imClone, then sold it off.
They went down
The feds came around
They said she might have made some illegal insider trades
But that was a crime, Martha knew when the stocks were gonna slide
They run her photo inside Newsweek and Time, and People say she might be doing time
It just takes some time, Greenspan gets up in the middle of the slide
Says everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
Hey, don't think it's over yet.
Some really nasty stuff is going down at
WorldCom
They're in a mess, their stock is in the can.
Cause they lied in their accounting books about what they made.
And that was a crime, they've been futzing with the books since '99
Worldcom Worldcom is in decline, yet another big business has a plight a plight.
It just takes some time, Greenspan gets up in the middle of the slide
Says everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright
